Clean energy exports could provide 395,000 new jobs

Oct 14, 2021 | Insitutek

A recent Sunshot report by Accenture released by the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Council of Trade Unions, in partnership with WWF-Australia and the Australian Conservation Foundation, demonstrates just how significant Australia’s renewable export opportunity is.

The report outlines this incredible opportunity that would see Australia’s economy boosted by $89 billion and almost 400,000 jobs created for Aussie workers in regional areas. 

A global shift towards renewable power and clean energy goods and services is already well underway, and early action can make Australia a leader and position workers and businesses for the future.

The report finds that Australia’s largest clean export opportunities are in renewable hydrogen and ammonia, green metals, critical minerals, battery manufacturing, education and training, and engineering, ICT, and consulting services.

These industries offer the opportunity to create tens of thousands of well-paid jobs, mostly in regional areas and accessible by workers across all levels of skill and education.

This is just one of the many reasons why we are calling for Australia to become a Renewable Energy Export Superpower. Australia has some of the best renewable resources in the world, but other global economies are investing in them at a far greater rate than we are. We have a choice: we can risk being left behind or we can harness an enormous opportunity.

After scouring the market, we settled on the PANDA DCP test equipment as it offered the technical capability and, moreover, the flexibility required to work in the restricted environment our project presented; overhead clearance typically at 1500mm but as low as 1200mm.  We had a unique problem that required a unique solution and that’s precisely what we found through the team at Insitutek and the PANDA equipment.  The ease of assembly, intuitive operability and compact nature of the equipment, made light of the numerous soundings we required across a widely dispersed area.

We are using the PANDITO DCP for Level 1 site supervision, it’s very portable and we find it handy for flying into sites.

The Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD) was first used in 1998 by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) at the Minnesota Road Research Project. Starting in 2005 the LWD has been used by Mn/DOT as an acceptance tool for the compaction of roadbed and miscellaneous embankment and trench construction, culvert treatments and other tapered construction.
